Actor Vijay, director Murugadoss sued for defamation

Madurai: Tamil actor Vijay, director A.R. Murugadoss and producers Lyca Production have been slapped with a defamation suit for making a reference to the 2G spectrum case in their recently released Tamil actioner "Kaththi".

The defamation case was filed here Tuesday in the magistrate's court.

According to complainant R. Ramasubramanian, a dialogue in the film suggested that corruption "had occurred" in the 2G spectrum case when the matter is still being heard in the court.

In "Kaththi", Vijay mouths a dialogue that goes: "We live in a country filled with people that have looted crores of rupees using 2G waves."

"How can a film conclude that all those involved in the 2G spectrum case are corrupt when the case is still being heard in court? This dialogue portrays all those people in poor light and damages their dignity," Ramasubramanian said.

The court granted permission to file the petition and adjourned the case till Nov 11.

"Kaththi", which released Oct 22, has turned out to be a blockbuster. It has raked in over Rs.50 crore in its opening week worldwide.
